Adam with the Angelika Blog sats down with writers/actors Rashida Jones and Will McCormack to discuss their new film CELESTE & JESSE FOREVER. They talk about being first-time writers and the arduous task of selling a script several times over and eventually finding a home with Sony Pictures Classics. They also talk about casting Jones and Andy Samberg in the lead roles, and the atmosphere on a set that had only 3 weeks to film.
ABOUT THE FILM:
CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER transforms the conventional romantic comedy with a bracingly honest real life vibe, exploring both the comedy and complexity of love and friendship. Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg and Parks and Recreation’s Rashida Jones (who also co–wrote the screenplay) star as a couple who married young, grew apart, and separated when their lives went in different directions. While navigating the turbulent changes in their lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go.
